BET Nominations: Ghana makes no show

Published

on

Nominations for the prestigious Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards have been announced, and for the first time since 2010, Ghana-based artists are absent in the Best International Act category.

Usual Ghanaian candidates; Stonebwoy and Sarkodie, who were highly anticipated to make an appearance, failed to do so, in something with many deem a big blow to the industry here.

This year sees the merger of Best International Act: Africa & UK, and that crown is contested by Davido, Tiwa Savage, Booba, Dadju, Distruction Boys, Fally Ipupa, J Hus, Steflon Don, and Niska. Indeed, Ghana’s only real association with the category would be the nomination of Gryme act, Stormzy, who, though is a UK artist, bears Ghanaian ancestry.

R2Bees, Kojo Antwi, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, MzVee, and D- Black constitute Ghana’s BET International Act honourees in the last six years.

Hiphop mogul, DJ Khaled leads this year’s nominations with 6. Other big nominees include Migos and SZA, who earned 4 nominations each. Bruno Mars, Drake, Beyonce, JAY-Z, Cardi B and Chris Brown are also nominated for cardinal awards.

More soon…

‘‘Ernest Opoku should go and ask for forgiveness from Nayas’’ – Rev. Mensah Bonsu

Published

on

Ghanaian Gospel musician Rev Mensah Bonsu has commented on the recent unfortunate fracas that ensued between Gospel musician Ernest Opoku and Ghanaian actress Nayas. Ernest Opoku had admitted in a previous interview of making a mistake by having an affair with the actress which resulted in a pregnancy. However, speaking with GN TV’s Pamela Boateng, Rev Mensah Bonsu has advised his colleague musician Ernest Opoku to seek forgiveness from Nayas so as to have peace of mind.

‘‘Whenever I sin, I rebuke myself and confess my sins to God. God did not come to condemn us. Condemnation is not biblical. When you wrong someone, you need to accept and ask for forgiveness and determine it won’t recur. It’s good Ernest says he’s sought forgiveness from God.

My problem is, if he hasn’t sought forgiveness from Nayas, he should do so, so she can freely forgive him. It is obvious Nayas is doing all these out of pain,’ Rev Mensah Bonsu said.

Commenting on the ongoing debate as to whether or not Gospel musicians should charge when invited to perform in churches, the ‘Nhyira’ hitmaker asserted that he will not fault any musician who charges as he believes the cunning ways of some Pastors have left them with no other option.

‘‘We all have different callings so I won’t condemn anyone. Some of my colleagues charge because of the dubious behaviours of some pastors. I once went to minister in a church and after the ministration; the host who was supposed to see to my welfare was nowhere to be found. Ideally, musicians shouldn’t charge

MAN DON’T DANCE! The return of Big SHAQ – LISTEN

Published

on

Comedian Michael Dapaah (Big Shaq), who became a viral sensation last year for his nonsensical Gryme hit, Man’s Not Hot, returns with new music titled Man Don’t Dance.

Like it’s predecessor, this new record, released under Republic, is laced with the meaningless ad-libs and character which courted Dapaah astonishing success last year. The theme? Shaq is disinterested about dancing with a girl because, well, “man don’t dance”.

Credited as an actor, writer, presenter & social media influencer, Dapaah also recently published a cover version of Fuse ODG’s “Boa Me”, celebrating Ghana’s 61st anniversary.
